I went to smallbusiness.xo at the suggestion of one of my part time employees and man, it’s made things a lot easier around here. Business is slow because of the economy so I thought now would be a good time to get organized behind the scenes so that when things did pick back up I’d be ready, you know? So I told my intern to get online and organize all the pictures and even my part-time staff has been pitching in with everything from organizing the back office to arranging all the stuff in the closets. It’s hard enough owning an event planningcompany without having to store all this stuff but I just found that it made more sense economically in the long run to buy it than to try and rent it all out, you know? My clients come to me because they know I can give them a really good deal and it’s because I’ve spread myself out far and wide – sometimes I think it’s a bit too thin, actually!
